Development Support


Running a voluntary and community organisation takes time, effort and dedication. 


We can help you to access information and advice on practical issues such as:


  • Advice on charity issues - Guidance on setting up a group, changing your constitution or structure
  • Governance – Understanding your trustee responsibilities
  • Organisational review - Review of current status including governance, policies and procedures, funding strategy and business planning.
  • Developing your organisation – Writing policies and procedures
  • New project support - Guidance with the development of specific new and special projects.


1 hour's worth of this service is provided free of charge to CVS Full Members.
